GMC Sierra OEM Leaf Springs at General Spring
Sierra is a very popular half-ton pickup truck, and if you have one, you will
want to keep it in tip top shape to get the most from your investment. Of
course, one of the most important parts of a well-functioning pickup truck is
its suspension. Without a suspension that is functioning properly, your truck
will have trouble carrying the loads you need it to move. This is precisely why
it’s incredibly important to regularly monitor your suspension performance.
How Do You Monitor Your Suspension Performance?
One of the
easiest ways to tell if your suspension is having issues is to look at your
truck from the front and back and see if it sits lower on one side or the
other. If so, you might have a sagging leaf spring on the side that is sitting
the wheels, take a closer look at the leaf springs, cleaning any dirt and grime
with a wire brush if necessary. If you see a leaf has slipped, you might be
able to put it back in place and tighten the clamps, but if you see cracks or excessive
wear, then replacing the leaf springs is your best bet.
What to Do If You Need New Leaf Springs
If it has been
determined that you need new
, make sure you purchase the right fit and model
year for your truck. Not every truck is the same, so leaf springs differ
between brands and even model years. Having the right fit is critical to bringing
your truck back to factory standard.
If you are
replacing your leaf springs, and it is earlier than expected, you might also
want to consider installing heavier duty leaf springs that can handle a heavier
load. You may have worn your leaf springs out early by overloading, and this
can help alleviate this common problem for truck owners. The experts at General
Spring can answer any questions you may have on making this improvement to your
